ELF Contour Palette ($6) includes four different powders. Three of them are matte and one is a shimmer.
The shimmer shade is the top left off white color. The top right color has a touch of yellow to it. The bottom left contour color has a hint of orange while the other is a cooler darker brown.
The packaging is square black plastic similar to the ELF Blush Palettes. The lid includes a generous sized mirror.
Just like the blush palettes, each of these individual colors pop out of the palette. So essentially you could customize a palette to include a few blushes and a few contour colors to travel with.
All four colors have a pretty silky smooth texture that makes them easily blendable. My fair skin doesn’t require me to use a lot to get color payoff. However, if you need a lot, it can get a bit chalky and powdery.
I find the three matte colors useful but I have yet to find a good use for the shimmery off-white. The yellow based powder works really well to set my concealer. The darker, cooler brown works well to carve out the cheekbones while the other nicely warms up the rest of my face.

My Final Thoughts:
For only $6, this is definitely worth a try. I would gladly pay that price for the yellow powder alone so I think this is a good deal for anyone wanting a contour palette but on a tight budget.
